About Bedroom in Arles
Van Gogh painted three versions of this work in 1888 and 1889. All three versions depict Van Gogh’s bedroom at 2, Place Lamartine in Arles, France, known as the "Yellow House." Van Gogh’s own title for this composition was simply The Bedroom.
The three paintings are currently housed at the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam, the Art Institute of Chicago and the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
About Vincent van Gogh
Vincent van Gogh (born March 30, 1853, Zundert, Netherlands—died July 29, 1890, Auvers-sur-Oise, near Paris, France) was a Dutch post-impressionist painter who posthumously became one of the most famous and influential figures in the history of Western art.
In a decade, he created about 2,100 artworks, including around 860 oil paintings, most of which date from the last two years of his life. They include landscapes, still lifes, portraits and self-portraits, and are characterized by bold colors and dramatic, impulsive and expressive brushwork that contributed to the foundations of modern art. He was not commercially successful, and his death at 37 came after years of mental illness, depression and poverty.
